Museum Receives Arts Program Grant

The Great Lakes Children’s Museum recently received a $712.00 grant from the Genuine Leelanau Charitable Endowment to fund one session of a new program called “Arts in Action.”

“Arts in Action” is designed to showcase art forms and artists in a way that allows guests to experience not only the explanation of the art but the art form itself.  Artists will be gifted at presenting their art form, but also able to delve into the “foundations” of the art form itself.  Artists will also be gifted at listening and answering questions from inquisitive guests as well as being able to mentor participants as they work their way through a self-paced immersion included as part of the program.

The inaugural ‘Arts in Action’ will be scheduled in January 2015.  Stay tuned for more information.
